Abstract #5



This is my fifth mini embroidered abstract art quilt. (That's why it's called "Abstract #5"... such a clever little title!) I am having so much fun with these! All of the applique pieces on this particular quilt are of japanese chirimen fabric. This type of fabric was developed in the 16th century and has a lovely subtle "wrinkled" texture to it, which comes from the way it is woven.

Interesting choice of color (in a good way!) and it contrasts the Japanese fabric so well. Brilliant.

This is beautiful! I love your bright color choices.

Have you ever considered scanning/photographing your small quilts, and putting prints of them in your shop? It's an idea! :)

Good idea, thanks! I just may do that!

congratulations on your sales and treasury appearances! I bought some japanese fabric a little while ago and the texture is gorgeous, I haven't used any yet, I love how you have incorporated into your quilts.
